SkyCottage Residence by archimania located in Memphis, TN

| architect, modern architecture | September 09, 2009

Just when I think I’ve seen the coolest house on the planet something upstages it.  I found this project today designed by archimania on the Karmatrendz Blog.  Here’s a taste.

From Karmatrendz Blog

SkyCottage is a progressive home whose design is informed by the view of the Mississippi River, embraces the challenges of a tight site, and enhances the community fabric of one of the earliest examples of New Urbanism.

Concept
This three-story residence occupies a tiny, pie-shaped corner lot with a view of the Mississippi River. The parti demonstrates an interest in abiding by the rules set forth in the neighborhood, yet also bending them as a response to the River. The result is the composition of two architectural volumes. A white-brick cube aligns itself with the established streetscape of rowhouses, and an elevated alloy-coated steel box resists this grid by transversing the cube in both directions, responding directly to the River view.

About the author

After working at various design practices on a full-time and freelance basis, and starting his own design firm, David McFadden saw that there was a gap to be filled in the industry. In 1984, he created an expansive hub for architects and hiring firms to sync up, complete projects, and mutually benefit. That hub was Consulting For Architects Inc., which enabled architects to find meaningful design work, while freeing hiring firms from tedious hiring-firing cycles. This departure from the traditional, more rigid style of employer-employee relations was just what the industry needed - flexibility and adaption to modern work circumstances. David has successfully advised his clients through the trials and tribulations of four recessions – the early 80’s, the early 90’s, the early 2000’s, and the Great Recession of 2007.
